Blackfive has an article called Aiding and Abetting the Enemy: the Media in Iraq. LTC Ryan doesn't say anything we don't already know and hate, but he says it all well.

In a similar vein, see VDH's Triangulating the War.

If it weren't for the fact that these same people were saying the same thing a year ago, I might have some reason to believe them. I'll wait to see some actual discernable positive results before listening to the cheerleaders rah-rahing about how wonderful things are over there.

Disclaimer: my brothers are serving over there and have a quite different view of the miserable situation over there, so I have some biases. I'm just glad they aren't dead or mangled like some of their buddies who got hit with a roadside bomb.

they should only report about all the people who went to the beach and didn't get swept away by a tsunami....and all the people who drove safely to work without an accident...what about all the people who weren't kidnapped or raped and the people who weren't shot at convenience stores...let's hear about them once in a while
